Spam / Phishing from PN

Hi Guys,

Just received an email to address that I do *not* use in communication with PN suggesting that I haven't paid my bill and:

"

Let's get you sorted

Paying your bill online

If you've missed a payment, don't worry, you can pay safely and securely online.

Please note: this service will be suspended in 48hours after receiving this message in case the payment is not done.

Make Payment


2018 © Plusnet plc - All Rights Reserved"

which I know is a load of rubbish. (I've only copied the underlined link text, not the URLs themselves for safety reasons.)

Is this something PN are aware of and/or need to alert people to?

Best,

Ray.

Yes, just had similar.  Poorly worded email but nevertheless worrying as this is the first instance of PlusNet accounts being misused in this way. Rupert

Hi @BoneMan

 

I've sent you a private message, if possible could you get back to me via there and I will ensure this is investigated.

 

Thanks

NP. It's on its way to you. I've 'blocked' the image (just in case 😉 ) but the links in the mail itself are 'live' 😉

 

Happy hunting and I hope you get the bar stewards.

 

Best,

Ray.

Abs. NP 🙂 I don't want to receive them and you don't want them sent. Good luck ... and let us know what you find out ... if you can 😉

 

Best,

Ray.

I've just had one as well.  Heavily suspicious it was spam, so came here to have a look!

Just received exactly the same email.  Wanted to forward it to PlusNet but they don't have a customer services email!
